|Holappa, left; DeNugent, right; reconciliation?|
On the June 20th Bad Squad post, a message from Holappa was published in which Holappa accused de Nugent of having set up Holappa's arrest in the United States and trying to get Holappa arrested again in Finland. The post also includes a truncated copy of a corroborative e-mail from de Nugent cited to support Holappa's accusations.
However, later on June 20th, John de Nugent announced on his own website that he and Holappa have reconciled, acknowledging the help of a former member of the Order as an intermediary. He reports that Holappa made the first move by calling and apologizing, during which time de Nugent expressed his own regret at fueling the controversy himself. Both are fighters, and both got caught up in what's described as some "brutal psychological warfare".
Is this reconciliation genuine? Not only have the two Stormfront threads describing this dispute, HERE and HERE, been removed, but the involvement of Richard Scutari, a man in whom Holappa has confidence, as an intermediary, lead me to believe it is genuine. Consequently, no valuable purpose can be served in pursuing this story further; just because I find John de Nugent's form of activism to be a bit unconventional does not mean I cannot express satisfaction that the hatchet has been apparently buried.
We can now return to more productive pursuits.
